Senators spoke into a phonograph congratulatory messages to explorer Stanley. Col.

A good deal has been heard of the lamentable condition of tbe iemale workers in tbe New England factories. Bat the statistics of Massachusetts show that the unmarried females of thst State have �29, 000,000 on deposit in tbe Savinga Banks of that State. Their condition doea not seem so desperate after all. Tkk Democrats of Jersey City, in their Board of Aldermen, bave jnat practiaed a beaotifn! gerrymander. The Republicans elected fire out of e>x Aldermen at the re-oent election, whereupon tbe Democratic msjoiity in tbe Board proceeded to carve the districts into sneh Bbape that hereafter tbe Democrats will elect five oat of the six!__ It seems rather more than a coincidence that since the Legialstnre of North Dakota bas spurned the bribes oflered by the Louisiana Lottery oompany, tbere have been no more (10,000 and 15,000 prina drawn by Dakota people. Tbe oiroam-stance has set the people of that young Commonwealth to thinking. Tbe census of 1890 will show that the people of this country are prodnciog about 814,000,000,000 worth of useful products annnaliy. Oar exports are about 1700,. 000,000 only, showing that we seod abroad only about 5 per cent, of all we produce, and tbat the borne market takes 85 per cent. Doesn't this show tbe importance of fostering the borne market? Theke are to-day three beet-sugar factories in the United States. Two are Jn California and one in Nebraska. Each one of these cost about 1500,000 to build. They nse about fifty tons of coal psr day dqring tbe sugar-making season and employ two hundred men each, turning out about thirty tons of angar per dsy. To supply onr sugsr needs in tbe year 1930 will require seven hundred each factories, and necessitate an investment of' 1350,000,000 to build. Every industry in the land would be benefitted by such a colossal enterprise._"_ JOHV M. WARD AND HIB WIFE. RANMLL IN HIS GRAVE.

Chicago, April 17.-A maniac made a desperate assault with a butober knife on the passengers of a State street oar, near Sixteenth street, about 1 o'clock this morning. Four men were badly out, but no one was fatally wonnded. The Injured areArobie Patno, a saluon keeper, wbo received a out six inches long, extending from beneath his right ear around under his cbin, and an ugly stab in the arm Henry Patno, whose cheek waB laid open to tbe bonB and his upper lip out off; Thomas Brennan, who was cut across the top of. the head, and Ben Swehey, who received a slight cut on tbe left forearm After a desperate struggle tbe madman was captured aud the knife taken from him. At the station the crazy tramp gave bis name aa B.IliePatterson, a circus roustabout, but refused to assign any cause for bis murderous assault on the passengers of the car. The street car had just crossed Sixteenth street going north when Patterson jumped on tbe rear platform. With howl like a Zulu warrior he drew a large batcher-knife and made a lunge at the conductor^who saved himself by jumping from tbe oar. Then tbe madman dashed nto tbe car, in whioh were seated fifteen or twenty passengers. With one sweep be laid bare the chock of Mr. Patno In hu instant every man was on hia feet and there was a wild rush for the front door. In their haste to get the door open it wan sprucg and would only open about a foot. Through tbis narrow aperture three or four escaped. Meanwhile tbe maniao was wielding the knife with terrible effect. At length the oondnotor got his oar-hook, and with one blow on the fellow's arm sent tbe knife spinning through a window. Patterson was seized aud the patrol wagon was called. Patterson looked as though he bad bees on a protracted spree, and it ia believed ho was suffering from delirium tremens at tbe time.

Y-, Aptil 17.-The announcement has been made to very intimate friends here of the marriage of Miss Winnie Davis, the eldest daughter of Jefferson Dsvis, tbe late President of tbe Southern Confederacy to Mr. Alfred Wilkinson, of this oity, the grandson of Samuel J. May, the great abolitionist leader. Dame Rumor has for a long time past whispered of tho possibility of such an event coming to pass, but it was only when Mr. Wilkinson returned from Europe a few woeke ngo that the rumor be gan to assume tangible shape, and it was only witbhs a day or two ago that one of Mr. Wilkinson's bosom friends was apprised of the engagemeut. The event Is of more than ordinary aig: nidcance, owiug to its bearing oa tbo birth and fall of tbe rebellion. This marriage, wben accomplished, will unite two fami-liea wbo have been heretofore the moat mplacable political foes, and to whose efforts tbe fierceness and fervor of the rebellion are largely due. The life of Miss Davis is too well known to be repealed bere, but tbostoiy of Mr. Wilkinson's parentage ib comparatively uuknowu. He is the son of John Wilkinson, a very prominent figure in Iocs! history and the graudsou of Rev. Samuel J. May. The name of tbe Rjv. May is one of the bright gems in tbe abolition sky, for he was tbe pioneer, with Garrison, Emerson, Phillips snd Lmgfellow, in the great work for the abolition of slavery. Hot only in the TJuited States, but In Europe also, did be fight for tbe abolition cause. In Great Britain especially Mr. May leot-ured opon slavery to large audiences. After bis removal to Syracuse Mr. May continued to be very active and prominent iu promoting the anti-elavery reform. He soon became known far aud wide as a fearless and unoompromising abolitionist. Hundreds of men, women, aud children, fleeing from bondage and bound for Cans, da, came to bim for protection and help, and tbey never oame in vain. He assisted miny to escape, among them being the celebrated Jerry MoHsury, whose liberation created suob a sensation, tbe anniversary of which was celebrated for several years. ' Tbe story of tbe oourtship ia most romantic Miss Winnie Davis name North some four years ago to visit Dr. Thomas Emory, of the firm of D. McCsrthy dt Co, in this oity. It was her first visit to this old abolitionist stronghold, and she: was consequently quite anxious to meet the society of Syracuse. At one of the receptions given inner honor she wan Introduced to Mr. Alfred Wilkinson. It Will be remembered tbat Miss Winnie received a cool reception in one or two bouses bene, and tbis treatment of tbe "Daughter of the Confederacy" ia aid to have brosujht ber and Mr. Wilkinson In vary elans relations. He resented the coolness shown her and gsllsutly championed her CAoae. The* friendship thus engendered between them blossomed into love in due time. Mies' Winnie later on went to Europe with a cousin of bera and is still there. VLt. Wilkinson soma two months sen crossed the ocean to see Miai Davis and spent several weeks with her slghtseeliig un the Continent and pressing hia salt. Wben he returned they were betrothed. Mr. Wilkinson is a bright snd promising young lawyer bere, abont twenty-eight years of age. His law partner Is Mr. Albert Hey. Tbeir bnsiness is ajssoa*Wtfn. ly confined to patent cases. Their iaarjsao is quite fairj bnt Mr. Wilkinson Is not a rich man. It is a love match.
